Gents or ladies?

It's probably a ladies watch, but at 29mm I think it would have been a large ladies at the time. What do you think @Aurelian

Thanks to the magic that is the modern internet I can tell you that Gillex became a brand of the Artax Watch Company in 1981. By 1981 a 29mm watch would have clearly been meant for women.

Artax was a Swiss firm, founded in the early 1970's, who primarily imported to China and South East Asia. Several years ago they appear to have become a Chinese brand. The founder of Mondaine was on their board in the 1980's.
